How many times has this happened.  All planned up for the next trip and once we reach the destination and start unpacking we find a list of items missing. Normal trips things can be managed, but on treks sometimes the situation gets bad.

Just helping out fellow wravelers with the list of items we deem necessary for any altitude trek.  Feel free to add anything item you think we missed out on.

  • 1 Down Jacket (Main jacket)
  • 1 Raincoat/ Poncho
  • 1 Inner thermal Layer
  • Trek pants or lower
  • Extra pair of Socks
  • Trekking/ Hiking Shoes (having ankle support and water resistance)
  • Woolen Cap
  • Rucksack (At least 40L)
  • T-shirts or fleeces
